Atlanta, Georgia (May 2, 2013) – Littler Mendelson, P.C. (Littler), the world’s largest employment and labor law firm representing management, has added Tamika Nordstrom as a shareholder in the Atlanta office. Nordstrom was previously a shareholder with Ogletree Deakins in its Atlanta office and is part of a second grouping of attorneys, who have joined shareholder Don Prophete in his move to Littler. In addition to Nordstrom, the firm brings on five associates located in various offices throughout the U.S.
“Tamika is another valuable addition to the firm and we look forward to having her join along with an impressive group of associates,” said Thomas Bender, co-president and co-managing director of Littler. “These recent additions further demonstrate our commitment to obtaining high-quality talent as we continue to expand our presence nationally and globally,” added Jeremy Roth, co-president and co-managing director of Littler.
Don Prophete, former vice president of Ogletree and founding partner of its Kansas City office, has been the catalyst for multiple lateral and associate additions. In addition to Nordstrom, the latest attorneys joining from Ogletree include two associates in Littler’s Kansas City office and three associates in the firm’s St. Louis, New York and Philadelphia offices.
Nordstrom has extensive experience representing management in all areas of labor and employment litigation, including noncompetition and trade secret matters, claims under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), discrimination and harassment claims, and wage and hour disputes. Her experience includes practicing in several federal and state courts, before arbitrator tribunals and at numerous bench and jury trials, as well as handling appeals in both federal and state appellate courts.
Nordstrom earned her J.D. from Hamline University School of Law in 1997 and her B.A. from DePauw University in 1993.
